You can make this easy and without having to work twice where other people already leave its contribution, that is what the unix philosophy is about. Reuse other applications like curl/wget to make connections. Keep your your work at rendering engine but base off common unix tools and make it a frontend to all of those.

Elinks lets you change key bindings and make custom scripts, so it's probably possible to have it run youtube-dl and mplayer from a youtube link.
It doesn't display images inline though, but relies on external viewer (like Lynx).

IRC is simply inconvenient by any communication standards.
It is volatile, and doesn't keep message history on the server.
Multi-user chat concept is retarded for anything beyond game sessions, bots and casual shitposting. Group voice calling software and XMPP/Discord conferences with history supersede it for gamers.
Threaded forum boards and Slack supersede it for serious discussions where you can always connect to server and review old messages.
Finally, today IRC means connect to "our" IRC server hosted by third-party like Freenode, basically reddit in denial.

Virtual Distro Hopping Anonymous 11/20/2017 (Mon) 20:09:06 [Preview] No. 11773 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Let's see what's the state of the Linux desktop in the current year of the Linux desktop. For this purpose I setup a virtual machine with qemu. You'll find more details on the arch wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/QEMU - I create some dedicated space to install the distro and download or torrent legally the NET install ISO from the distro's homepage.
qemu-img create -f qcow2 fedora27.cow 20G

I run qemu with sudo, so I can use kvm. kvm allows you to use your whole CPU. You can use kvm as non-privileged user, by creating a new group in your udev rules. But I'm too lazy for that.
sudo qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -m 4G -cdrom /path-to-your-folder/fedora27_x86_64.iso -boot order=d -drive file=fedora27.cow

First Distro I'm trying is Fedora 27. Installation is quick, you need to click on some options, but that's it, the rest is done in the background. If you want more control, you need to find the options first though. It uses wayland as standard. No more screen tearing, but without GPU passthrough to the virtual machine, it uses the CPU to render the graphics. 3D graphics and wayland slow down the whole thing and CPU is constantly over 50%. To test wayland better another test from a live image would be necessary. The bars on top are not as big as they used to be. The software looks uniform. Accessing software with the activities tab and then searching through very big icons is not practical. There is not so much software, but the installation size is still big. Firefox and LibreOffice take a lot of space. You can't rice or adapt much of the desktop, but you can download different styles.
My impression is that Gnome looks clean and can be used out of the box as is. It hides as much as possible from the user. It has the best touch screen and wayland support so far. I don't like the usability concept with the hidden software, it's too much optimized for touch devices in the mind. It might be interesting for someone who has a 2-in-1 device or likes the look and feel of Gnome to really use this as desktop. Fedora is a bit strange as distribution, as they ship classic releases with stable software from a due date, but also ship the latest kernel. The perfect distribution for Linus Torvalds, but not for the imageboard neckbeard.

I used only Debian and few derivatives, then switched for Gentoo. It's very good, but compiling may be slow at old computer. Still worth it. It just werks.

I am actually in search of comfy binary distro, is Devuan good? Currently trying out Void Linux for flashdrive install. I don't like it a lot, probably just because am not familiar with it. I consider just doing Gentoo there with heavy stuff like portage tree and compiling being done on home computer.

The best linux distro is your own.

Basically anything without systemd (gentoo, void, etc..). Gentoo is a good way to make you learn how to actually build your own distro (ofc, you'll need to understand the LFS process etc..).

WPA2 protocol attack Anonymous 10/17/2017 (Tue) 06:41:08 [Preview] No. 11568 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

>We discovered serious weaknesses in WPA2, a protocol that secures all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. An attacker within range of a victim can exploit these weaknesses using key reinstallation attacks (KRACKs). Concretely, attackers can use this novel attack technique to read information that was previously assumed to be safely encrypted. This can be abused to steal sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, chat messages, emails, photos, and so on. The attack works against all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. Depending on the network configuration, it is also possible to inject and manipulate data. For example, an attacker might be able to inject ransomware or other malware into websites.

>The weaknesses are in the Wi-Fi standard itself, and not in individual products or implementations. Therefore, any correct implementation of WPA2 is likely affected. To prevent the attack, users must update affected products as soon as security updates become available. Note that if your device supports Wi-Fi, it is most likely affected. During our initial research, we discovered ourselves that Android, Linux, Apple, Windows, OpenBSD, MediaTek, Linksys, and others, are all affected by some variant of the attacks. For more information about specific products, consult the database of CERT/CC, or contact your vendor.

The Q&A is worth reading, and has information on attack mitigations. Unfortunately, if you are using an Android smartphone that isn't receiving updates anymore, your WiFi security on that device is probably null.

I'll mostly agree with the second, although it's easy to attack some devices than others. The first one not so much.

This machine before your eyes is extremely powerful, a machine that grants its user access to all of the information conceived by the human species. It is capable of performing highly complicated mathematical calculations thousands, possibly millions of times faster than your typical human, and can store massive amounts of information, perhaps a library filled with thousands of books stored on this little machine, too massive for a measly individual to read in their lifetime, is reality.

When these sophisticated and wondrous machines had begun to appear in the 80's and 90's, the savvy individuals saw them for what they were, highly capable machines that would greatly change the world. They had taken advantage of this, and they became the first hackers, people armed with these extremely powerful tools. Companies and marketers observed this new medium and knew they could gain great wealth using it, and the mainstream mediums with the purpose of entertaining were born.

If only people knew just how powerful that little "phone" in their hand truly was. What a great time to be alive, so many ignorant fellows bickering about the problems in the world and how the past was such a great era, with no knowledge of what is truly happening at this moment.

I don't think I'm that intelligent. Really.
Actually, if you haven't understood the statements above, then it's my fault, not yours.

What you have said is true, except that there is no distinction between "computers" and "internet", it's the same. The interpretation of the informations on this internet is that is distinct from the computers.

About the text above (>>11303), I probably haven't explained properly.
Let's come back and do an analysis of your OP. You said:
>access to all of the information conceived by the human species.
That is not true, because we can access on computers only the information we produced, not the information we thought. Inside our heads there's much more information, that we can't express because these informations are not capable of being expressed with normal language (scripted or phonetic). That's why we have art, but even with art, complex thoughts can't be expressed because they are more of an experience through senses.
>performing highly complicated mathematical calculations
It does, but we should not just assume that mathematics is the "truth language". This is silly. Mathematics is a language used to express classical logic. So we should question if this classical logic is correct. If you go down the "rabbit hole", you'll notice that the foundations of science is not as solid as people think.

So, on my first comment I was just criticising your argument about "access to all of the information", basically.

About your AI idea, it seems cool, but that will take a huge effort and our understanding about human thoughts is not entire predictable, since we have no predictable model of the mind yet, and without all the variables you can't calculate.

All computers do past its true value as an efficiency chamber is create the illusion that an individual can achieve something when it's actually achieved by society as a whole. OP is wrong. Computers aren't helping us build cathedrals more magnificent or formulate philosophy more poignant, if anything it convinces us of the unworthiness of such attempts at beauty. What are hackers known for, the really good ones? Petty leeching off of society's existing structures, but in a very efficient way.

Basically, anything particularly useful that's done with computers is already done by massive superclusters that there can only be a few of in existence, or its tasks that have been done for ages by houses full of several people. It can be done by a single person with a PC, but giving them all a PC will not stack and only gets you repeated instances of those people doing the same thing over and over again. Ten million athletes will improve the world record only by milliseconds from the record of one million athletes. All it does is the athletes become less versed with anything else and become obtuse and preoccupied with their field, worse philosophers and worse voters.

Meanwhile, the only real innovation of personal computing is that once dumbed down enough we can now decrease the amount we actually have to commute to the same building to work.

Bit torrent and P2P communities will be what temporarily saves the internet for past and current generations. Future generations won't know anything about the current internet and less than 1% will ever use P2P software rendering the internet into commercialized networks much like we see on TV.

I agree, backup everything and make sure you have multiple backups. But this won't save the internet forever as the mindless public capitulates to the total destruction of everything that made the internet so great.

If the original intenet ever goes, I'll go with it, and I won't be buying a bunch of "smart" tech or other commercialized crap. I'll be reading books, watching DVDs, throwing darts and drinkin' booze from a jar again. Going back to simpler times like the early 80s.

I did a correlation between the major Ad networks and have found that they converge to unique autonomous networks used for this purpose. Can you guess who controls it?

In order:
1. AS16509
2. AS15169
3. AS14618
4. AS54113
5. AS13335
6. AS14061

You can look for yourself on radb.net or using whois(1).
If you want to block those, use this command and put on your router firewall:
